After Donahoe’s keynote was followed by another presentation by Wikipedia founder and CEO Jimmy Wales on the history of offering all human knowledge free of charge to anyone with internet connection.
Although both keynotes were worlds apart in their subject matters, both emphasized the importance of the evolving mobile space. Mobile in general is also a primary theme of the event with new firms showing their mobile solutions, alongside seasoned payment platforms now entering the mobile space.
